Yamaha FZ-X vs Yamaha FZ: Key differences

By Aditya Jadhav | on June 20, 2021

The Yamaha FZ-X, based on the popular FZ, has made its India debut and demands a substantial premium over the motorcycle it's based on. Here we highlight the key differences between the two motorcycles.

Yamaha has just introduced the FZ-X in India for Rs 1.17 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle is largely based on the Yamaha FZ, but there are a few key differences between the new FZ-X and the street naked 150cc motorcycle.

For starters, the FZ-X's styling is more in line with a retro-modern motorcycle. The styling changes include a new headlamp design and a relatively higher-set handlebar. The fuel tank also sports a new boxy design with butch body cladding. A slimmer fuel tank also means reduced capacity – it holds only 10 litres of fuel as opposed to 13-litres of the standard FZ and FZ-S.

The seat has been widened, and the rider seat height has been lifted by 20mm over the standard FZ. The seat height has been set at 810mm, which could be a little high for short riders. The FZ-X tips the scale at 139kg (kerb), which is 4kgs more than that of the standard FZ model.

Feature-wise, the FZ-X gets a negative LCD with a new instrument cluster layout. The motorcycle also gets Yamaha's connected app, which syncs the rider's smartphone via Bluetooth.

That said, the FZ-X gets the same 149cc air-cooled single-cylinder motor that does duty on most Yamaha 150cc motorcycles. The power and torque figures are rated at 12.2bhp and 13.6Nm, respectively. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed transmission. The cycle parts between the FZ and the FZ-X are common. The FZ-X gets semi-block pattern tyres, which is more suitable for rough roads.

The base variant of the Yamaha FZ-X has been launched with two variants. The base model retails at Rs 1,16,800 (ex-showroom) – Rs 12,000 over the price of Yamaha FZ. The higher model, which comes equipped with Yamaha Motorcycle Connect, has been priced at Rs 1,19,800 (ex-showroom).
